Surf Coast Shire Council is committed to working with the community and Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) on future options for the Anglesea Bike Park.

Council has engaged locally-based specialist trails consultant Gerard McHugh from World Trail to assist in the investigation of available options and outline likely associated costs. Importantly, this work also involves looking at the opportunity for a bike park to double as the trail head for a local trail network, with connections to the additional local and regional trails.

The project will be undertaken in five key stages and delivered by August 2018.

Stage one

Project commencement, agreed project plan, timeframes and communications plan. 

Stage two

Assessment report with cost opinion and Governance Review.

Stage four

Trail Network Concept Plan

Stage five

Refinement and presentation of finalised trails network concept plan.
